    Thank you everyone for taking a look, appreciated as always, and for all the kind comments.

    Barry - worth a visit if only for the fact it's not usually as wet as the Lake District.

    Jane - I would have liked a little more of the driver in shot but on the bend it was not possible.

    Lovely shot - must go and have a look!

    Thanks for viewing & comment, Number Six, appreciated. There are quite a few good viewpoints along the line to get good shots of the trains (even more if you are prepared to walk). Levisham is rather off the beaten track and the end of a single lane road in the bottom of the valley but worth a visit.

    Very nice train shot! We don't see this kind of scenery very often nowadays, it's great to get a refresher on what it used to be! :-) Thanks for sharing!
